In April, the Alaska Division of Economic Development will conduct a “train-the-trainer” workshop for people interested in using the Alaska Tour Guide Training Program (ATGT) curriculum to train new or returning guides within their company, community, or organization.
The ATGT course curriculum provides instruction on the following topics: elements of a successful trip, different learning styles of clients and guests, Alaska’s visitors and their expectations, the art of interpretation or telling a story, principles and techniques for responding when trips don’t go as planned, and more.
